Ring camera customers have the chance to bag an impressive $1 million cash prize, and the task (arguably) isn't that difficult.
It's estimated that there are more than ten million Ring camera users in the US, and the company wants customers to submit their extraterrestrial footage which captures 'unaltered scientific evidence of a real extraterrestrial lifeform'.
I mean, people have long been sharing their disturbing Ring footage of something that looks from another world - so you may as well make some cash from it.
In a press release for their 'Million Dollar Search for Extraterrestrials' competition, the popular home surveillance company said: "Customers all over the world capture life’s unexpected and delightful moments through their Ring Video Doorbells and Cameras. Now, you could be rewarded for catching an otherworldly sighting."
It went on: "Whether it’s a video of an extraterrestrial walking (or flying?) up your driveway and asking for directions or an unidentifiable lifeform exhibiting unusual and extraordinary behavior in your backyard - submit your best footage!"
While July is said to be the best most for UFO sightings - as per an analysis of the National UFO Reporting Center's database - you only have until 3 November to submit your applications.
11:59pm is the official deadline and there's no fee to take part but you do have to be over the age of 18.
You might be tempted to submit a mini documentary for your application, but I'm afraid the clips can be no longer than one minute.
According to USA Today, the winner won't receive their $1 million in a lump sum, but as $50,000 instalments over 20 years.
An expert will analyse the footage and decide whose videos meet the requirements before going on to judge which submission is the best.
The 'Out of this World' contest will be judged on applicants' creativity, humor and engagement.
The company urged people to 'show us your best extraterrestrial costumes, accessories, makeup, props, or other artificial means'.
"Have fun and don’t be fooled by the realistic costumes you may see on Halloween!" Ring added.

Happy alien and UFO hunting, folks!
